On June 21st, Libyan leader Moammar Qaddafi’s troops fired four rockets at the center of Misrata for the first time in weeks.
No one was injured from the blasts, but it left residents doubting the gains made by rebel forces mid-May when they managed to drive off Mr. Qaddafi’s forces.
On the same day, a team of medics, consisting of Europeans, Americans and Middle Easterners, as well as Libyans, were deployed on the Misrata frontline.
International organizations, such as USAID and Turkish Red Crescent have contributed to setting up the field hospital to treat the injured, which consisted initially of rebels.
Meanwhile, west of the coastal city, in Dafniya, four rebels were killed and 60 wounded in clashes with loyalist forces.
Rebels are continuing to move slowly towards the capital of Tripoli.
